Japanese said, “called the Yellow Sea where China’s most untouchable.” South Korea now “day” ship incident occurred in the west coast of the Korean Peninsula (the Yellow Sea) as an excuse to promote the sensitive waters in the military exercises, South Korean media has flatly declared that “Washington” nuclear-powered aircraft carrier will also participate. For a time the Yellow Sea change “hot” the sea, the Chinese Foreign Ministry also warned that such a move will further push the Korean Peninsula and tension in the region.

South Korean media: whether to send the aircraft carrier? The United States is entangled
CCTV June 22, according to reports, South Korean media reported that the ROK side has on the end of the Korean Peninsula, the West Sea (Yellow Sea, said China) held a joint military exercise agreement. Korea started the exercise from the 28th of this month. U.S. Seventh Fleet, “Washington” starts with the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier air wing, will also participate in the exercise.
However, whether deployed aircraft carrier in this issue, Korea and the U.S. military is somewhat different to say, South Korea, stressed that there must be carriers, while the U.S. position is vague.
Korea reported that the Obama government on whether to send aircraft carrier to participate in joint military exercises there have been controversial. Opposition that sent aircraft carriers into the Yellow Sea might annoy China or North Korea caused an overreaction.
Korea-US joint military exercise called “routine”, but had previously been in the waters east of the Korean Peninsula, namely the Sea of ??Japan, the U.S. aircraft carrier in its combat radius to reach the Yellow Sea, China’s local show of force , are quite rare in history. Thus, while this exercise to prove safety Korea Korea, but the foreign media have been speculating these days China’s reaction.
In addition, on the day the Chinese Foreign Ministry held a regular press conference, also a reporter asked the U.S. to send nuclear-powered aircraft carrier will be the end of June to go to the Yellow Sea in the US-ROK joint military exercises, the Chinese do? Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang said the “very concerned about the reports, is closely following developments.” Qin said the current circumstances, relevant parties should keep calm, exercise restraint, not to exacerbate tensions and undermine the interests of the countries in the region.

Military experts here believe that the situation on the Korean peninsula into the diplomatic game phase when U.S. aircraft carriers if they go into the Yellow Sea, marking the Korea-US to further push tensions in the Korean peninsula.

Expert: political and diplomatic pressure on me than military pressure
In fact, the Yellow Sea has never been a calm waters. In October 1994, the U.S. Navy without prior notification to our case, to send “Kitty Hawk”, cruise along China’s territorial sea boundary, and into China’s territorial waters, has just completed the track a sea of ??Chinese naval attack training nuclear submarines. To this end, military aircraft in one case, the air confrontation, this is the famous “Sino-US confrontation in the Yellow Sea.” “Washington” since September 2008 after entering the base in Yokosuka, Japan, the U.S. strategic deterrent layout has been an important platform for China. Such an attack at sea in the King if the gateway to China, Sino-US relations once again touched a sensitive nerve.
Shui Junyi (Moderator): Many people believe that if the U.S. really the aircraft carrier sent to the Yellow Sea waters, then it is a challenge to the gateway to China, Mr. Yin Zhuo not agree with this statement?
Yin Cho (Commentator): U.S. intentions, one of us to exert diplomatic and political pressure. But from another perspective, the general grouping of the United States aircraft carrier battle group operations are two-carrier, as carriers in combat to be rotated, to supply, so it must be a two-carrier battle groups to act as a real combat missions. No matter who is the face, the face of the Yellow Sea, including neighboring countries, no country can single-carrier battle groups to solve the problem. So obviously it is more of a diplomatic or political pressure.
expert: “Washington” to spy on China, like the palm like to see
Shui Junyi: “George Washington” is a nuclear aircraft carrier, From a military perspective, put it in the Yellow Sea is a concept?
Yin Cho: If one say that it’s purely military capabilities, such as detection range, it would be able to grasp the carrier as the core around over 1000 km. Its attack aircraft attack range is also about one thousand kilometers, such as the current F/A-18E/F, its combat radius of one thousand kilometers or so, many of China’s coastal areas should be within its operational radius. Basically, the gateway to North China are included, plus the north of the Shandong Peninsula in the war a large radius.
Shui Junyi: No wonder people say, China is concerned this is a very sensitive issue. Japan’s “administrative investigative journalism” Web site, said: called the Yellow Sea where China’s most untouchable. Why?
Yin Cho: Because in that place some of our naval bases, air bases, our entire coast of front-line military deployment in that place. Of course it is not as easy to detect them. Moreover, it can only look at some of the early warning aircraft moving targets on the ground, port, shore target detection is not so strong, it must meet one of its electronic surveillance, plus a number of shore-based Jizhen means together in order to carry out reconnaissance .
Shui Junyi: the so-called “gateway of Beijing and Tianjin,” Historically, too?
Yin Cho: history as well. In addition, we are now from the economic development, we are building the Liaodong Peninsula, the coastal economic belt along the coast, in addition to Beijing, Tianjin and such an economic zone, the Bohai Rim Economic Circle is our focus of economic development. Of course, it was so close by, then we are a very unfriendly said. (According to the CCTV interview, abridged)
